About Dr. Gillet and His Presentation
Brian Gillett is an academic Emergency Medicine physician possessing over a decade of leadership experience in the field of healthcare simulation and patient safety. He created and directed the simulation centers for Kings County Hospital, SUNY Downstate College of Medicine and Maimonides Medical Center, during which time SimCore was conceived. As a simulation director, he founded the company with the vision of creating patient safety solutions from within the simulation community.
Dr. Gillett’s presentation explored new technologies designed to improve healthcare performance through innovative, intuitive, and high impact solutions from within our community. Brian shared how effective and sustainable healthcare interventions must be developed in a genuine partnership with those who will ultimately utilize the systems. For simulation to succeed it has to first be managed and supported in an effective way, and this presentation showed us how through creative approaches and innovative solutions.
Dr. Gillet also demonstrated lessons for the successful development, growth, and support of staff who operate simulation programs from his numerous administrative roles. Finally, Brian shared key ways members of the SimGHOSTS community can increase the support of their professional development from administrators and clinical faculties from a “grass roots” perspective.
Brian's presentation was preceded by a special presentation by Carol F. Durham, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, Professor of Nursing Director, Education-Innovation-Simulation Learning Environment (EISLE) and Past-President of INACSL on the most recent update to the industry-wide Standards for Excellence in Simulation.
